Even without leaves, many trees and shrubs are still recognizable at this time of year. Learn the distinguishing characteristics for identifying more than 20 native species in the dormant season. Study branching patterns, growth habits, bark, and persistent fruits; closely examine bud and branch details; and learn to use identification tools called dichotomous keys. Dress for winter conditions because the class will be held outdoors and in the lab.
